Okay, so this is a daft popcorn revenge movie - pure entertainment; nothing more, nothing less. Brolin is solid in the title role, as a kind of supernaturally sensitive and stoical Spaghetti Western Clint Eastwood type character, seeking the man who murdered his family and disfigured his face with a branding-iron, and keeping busy in the meantime by bounty hunting.
Megan Fox plays the love interest - as hardened whore Tallulah she fulfills a role, and her acting seemed reasonable to me. John Malkovich is his usual reedy-voiced reptilian self as maniacal villain Quentin Turnbull, and Michael Fassbender is his psychopathic henchman; the bowler-hatted Irishman Burke. Set against the backdrop of the turbulent post-Civil War years, the movie plays it pretty straight, but there is a fair amount of padding in the form of repeated flashbacks, and it struggles to fill the relatively short running time of 75 minutes.

Jonah Hex (played by Josh Brolin - No Country For Old Men) is another graphic novel to silverscreen conversion about our heavily-scarred & super-natural bounty hunter of the same name. Hex betrays his confederate General Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich - Afterwards) killing Turnbull's son as an unintended consequence. As vengeance, Turnbull kills Jonah Hex's family forcing him to watch - tied to a post. When Crow Indians find him days later, near-death and with a brand on his face, their shaman work their magic but fail to "bring him back all the way". As a result our hero Hex has the uncanny ability to talk to the recently deceased as he has a foot on either side, one in life, one in death - it also gives him the useful knack of being able to dodge imminent death.

Hex swears revenge on Quentin Turnbull and is robbed of his vengeance when Turnbull appears to have died in a hotel fire. When several armouries of the fledgling United States are raided for key components of a weapon the world has never seen the likes of - Hex is roped into service to stop an enemy he thought had been laid to rest.

It may have been a box-office bomb - no argument there - but this film has been pretty much universally panned by critics saying it's incoherent, the plot is flimsy and that the acting is poor - but I would like to disagree. I'm not a diehard Jonah Hex fan or anything - I hadn't actually seen much of the character before watching the film - but I really liked the experience.

Loads to enjoy here. It's an updated, outsized revenge tale that happens to be set in the wild west. The piece is peppered with larger the life characters, rediculous situations, outrageous weaponry and bags of bare faced enthusiasm. After refusing a murggerous order, Jonah Hex, a confederate cavalryman, suffers the wrath of his psychotic ex commander Turnbull who, after the war, enacts bloody retribution by killing Hex's family and sending our hero to his grave.....or so we think...you see it all goes a bit like "the Crow" whereby Hex is brought back from the other side, resulting in his ability to revive the dead, momentarily. He becomes a bounty hunter before being recruited by the new government to track down and take his revenge on Turnbull who has since developed a super weapon. I read all the poor reviews before watching this, and I'm glad I did because my massively low expectations were blown away. Far from being a turkey, this appears as another example of a fun movie that doesn't deserve anything like it's poor reputation would suggest.

I'm not familiar with the comic-book character myself however was drawn to the film by the inclusion of ''John Malcovich' ( allways value for money especially as a 'baddie' as is he in this )
'Hex'(Josh Brolin) after the violent death of his family becomes a bounty hunter, the goverment approach him to track down 'Turnbull' an old advsory who thought 'Jonah' had died in a fire ( Turnbull' had been responsible for 'Hex's' family's death )
It seems that 'Turnbull' has stolen the plans and components for a super-weapon and plans to use it to bring down the goverment and claim the victory the 'South' had failed to achieve in the civil war.
'Hex' full of hate for the man and is the only one that can stop 'Turnbull'
It's a good if but short 'action-packed' comic-book style western---worth a spin.

Never having read any of the DC Comics featuring Jonah Hex I had no pre-conceived ideas when I bought this. After having watched it I'm in two minds as to whether I should bother with the comic.
It's not irredeemably bad, however, it's one of those movies where there are no good guys, just various shades of grey which doesn't help for what is basically a Wild West based superhero movie.
Jonah Hex (Josh Brolin) himself seeks revenge on Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich) who made him watch as his family were killed, he then brands his initials QT on Hex's face before leaving him for dead. Others have delved into the plot so suffice to say that Hex is brought back to life by a Native American Indian mystic and has developed the ability to talk to the dead along the way. Believing Turnbull has died he becomes a bounty hunter who carries an extensive range of firepower on his horse.
The Government approaches Hex for help and he finds out Turnbull is still alive and threatens to interrupt the centenial celebration of their independence from Britain using a new weapon of mass destruction, capable of "destroying continents".
There are some decent set pieces such as the destruction of a train and the final attack on Washington is impressive but it all seemed too disjointed lurching from one action scene to another with brief interludes, cue Megan Fox in a corset.
Although the scenes where he talks to the dead look good we never get to hear about how he got his powers; there's a brief animated cartoon voice-over at the start but it leaves most questions unanswered. Some of the scenes like the all-holds barred fighting may have been relevant to the comic but take up too much of the extremely short 78 minute running time.
